    Using my Surface 3 as display

    Since I'm using the docking station as the charger, are you aware of any specific requirements for a 12v to 110v adapter?

    Using my Surface 3 as display

    I'm assuming that for a couple of hours you don't charge in the car. I'm looking at 500miles a day. It'll have to be charging part of that.

    Using my Surface 3 as display

    I'm thinking of using my surface 3 in my truck as an information display. I would mount the docking station and plug it in to a 120v converter. I would use an OBD2 usb cable to the docking station. Should this work well? Has anyone done this with a surface?

    Is there an app for that (song sheets)

    Wow, that's wonderful, for professional musicians. I'm a picker and grinner who doesn't read music. I'm just looking for something to organize and flip the pages on my cheat sheets.

    Is there an app for that (song sheets)

    I play the guitar and sing. Not great, but fun. I'd love to be able to have song sheets on my Surface and flip pages with a pedal or button. I think there are apps for that with the iPad, is there anything that works that way for the Surface? I'm working with a Surface 3...

    What manner of magic is this? I do not understand how the device charges my Surface. It does, I just don't understand how. But, since it does, I'm marking my problem solved, and saying thank you.

    GreyFox7, you are indeed a SUPERMODERATOR. I think the miniusb port is the main problem, I've ordered the dock and I believe it will allow me to get the life out of the Surface 3 I always thought it ought to get. It's my opinion that devices that cost as much as these ought to have a minimum...

    My RT had charger issues, but that wasn't what caused me to upgrade to the Surface 3. My Surface 3 has had charger issues, and it is the charger issues that are necessitating an upgrade at this time. What has the better charging system, Surface Pro or Surface Book?

    Solved New/Old member wonders where to go next

    It's been along time since I've been on these forums. Started when I got my Surface RT and continued up to the time I got my Surface 3. I've loved my Surface 3, and if I didn't have so many charging issues wouldn't need to think about upgrading now. But it won't take a charge anymore, so I've...

    Trouble Watching Videos

    So, fastordiy says firefox, pignaz says Edge. Revmike and leeshor say not Edge, but don't offer an alternative?

    So do most of you suggest a browser other than Edge?

    Trouble Watching Videos

    I use Microsoft edge as a browser. The problem comes whether I go to youtube or hit a link to a video. If there is an app causing the problem, I'm not aware of it.
